Hands Sharing

In this video describing how sharing works for Google Docs, the Google team explain how we used to share files prior to Google Apps (now called G Suite). These ideas also apply to the sharing of other aspects within the Google ecosystem, such as:

  1. Calendar events
  2. Individual files or groups of files
  3. Folders
  4. Other types of files

The key difference for people to get their heads around is that in the past we sent a copy of the document to other people, whereas now we establish a link between a document and other people.In addition to this, consider the ability to share something with a group of users adds another layer to the possibilities of this powerful collaborative system.
